David Gwee and Josephine S. Keller fulfilled their scriptural obligation that a man and a woman will both leave their parents and become one as husband and wife. They did this when they exchanged wedding vows in a joyous holy matrimony on Saturday, November 7 at the Faith Assembly of God Church in Harbel Hill, Firestone, Margibi County.
The occasion was graced by the congregation, many relatives, friends and well-wishers from Harbel community and around Liberia.
In his words of admonition to the couple, Reverend Jacob M. Wilson of Presbyter Section #3, Harbel City, called on them to remain committed and truthful to one another in order to prevent confusion, which he said would not mean well for their family.
“For married couples to succeed in life they should make known their income to each other, take the money home at all times and must do budget planning before spending any amount from the account,” Rev. Wilson advised the couple, adding, “when you are married, you have become one flesh.”
Police Lt. Colonel (Retired) Ezra D. Keller, representing the Keller family, willingly and openly agreed to the marriage of their daughter Josephine to David Gwee as members of the congregation applauded.
The couple lived in the Firestone community for over 29 years before their marriage. They expressed gratitude to God, their families, friends and well-wishers “because they helped us until we realized our dream of getting legally married.”
They expressed special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Keller. They also thanked the Church of Faith Assembly of God and the Lord for bestowing on them His bountiful blessings.
